Protocol for Life Balance Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM combines the most effective nutrients known for their action in supporting healthy joint and connective tissue.
Glucosamine is an amino monosaccharide produced by chondrocyte cells (the cells found in cartilage that are responsible for the synthesis, maintenance, and regeneration of cartilage) and used to make glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans. GAGs and proteoglycans are the structural molecules that make up the connective tissues of the skin, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Glucosamine supplementation helps to provide the building blocks of these structural molecules, thereby supporting the maintenance of healthy joint tissues.
Chondroitin sulfate is another very important naturally occurring constituent of cartilage tissue. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown to work along with glucosamine to encourage healthy cartilage production.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic form of the mineral sulfur, found naturally in plants. Sulfur, provided by MSM, is widely recognized for promoting healthy skin, joints, bone, hair and nails. Glucosamine & Chondroitin with MSM can help to support healthy joint and connective tissue.

As a dietary supplement, take 2 Vcaps daily with meals or on an empty stomach. Caution:
Persons with known allergies to shellfish should not take this product. The only side effects reported with chondroitin sulfate usage appear to be mild gastrointestinal incidents. Similar adverse reactions have been reported with glucosamine and MSM, yet both of these compounds also are often suggested as supporting GI-tract health and function. It was thought that glucosamine might adversely affect insulin sensitivity, but clinical trials have disproven this. The use of MSM can lead to the occurrence of an abnormal resonance in the in vivo brain proton MR spectrum as well as in an in vitro cerebrospinal fluid NMR study, hence should be revealed prior to undergoing these or related diagnostic tests. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children. Disclaimer:
